Tequila Ocho Reposado Widow Jane comes to our portfolio by way of Carlos Camarena, a third generation Tequilero, and Tomas Estes, tequila legend and global spirits ambassador. Some would say this is the most dynamic and intense partnership in the tequila world, bringing to life decades of experience and deep understanding and respect for the agave plant. With a truly artisanal approach, Tequila Ocho brings terroir in Tequila to life, celebrating single estate agave harvests and yearly vintages, making them rare and collectible.
This rare tequila was produced at the famous La Alteña distillery in Arandas, by master distiller Carlos Camarena, NOM 1474.
